Coughing spread germs and we don’t get sick from covering our mouths when coughing.

    You can get sick from some of your own bacteria (like a UTI from the bacteria in your feces), but I am unclear about the covering the mouth---the reason you cover your mouth is to not spread it to others and use your elbow crook for example as they can be on your hands if you use your hands and everything you touch, you spread them to others.
